Alaska's Gov. Sarah Palin has questioned scientific evidence that the beluga whale population in the waters near Anchorage is declining. In fact last summer she urged the federal government not to list the whale as endangered, citing concerns of what a listing might do to the Cook Inlet economy.

Our healthcare as it stands now is a horror show. Companies are cutting hours and time to try to avoid even having to pay for healthcare. what you do pay for is almost worthless. I'm giving Obama a chance. Healthcare is one thing that just is not,not going to get better the way it stands now. Between insurance going higher and higher and liability increasing, plus the hospitals are understaffed and the people are overworked, we are screwed. If your not going to improve healthcare, then legalize assisted suicide! Nobody can pay to die with dignity!

Now on topic, Biden/Obama animal welfare records are 90 to 100%.

It's over for Obama.
His "crown jewel" health care plan just imploded under it's own weight in Hawaii!
The nations 1st and only attempt an universal style health care for children was shut down today.
Basically, everyone started dropping their kids off their plan and tried putting them on the government funded plan which sunk the entire program.
Sound familiar?
Yes, Obama's fantasy gov health care plan is eerily similar. Claims you can keep your plan but he's too naive to understand that millions would simply drop their plan to get so called "free" or "subsidized" ones from the government!
Just another example of a guy that gets it wrong far too often.
thats funny because Obama doesnt have a government healthcare...hmmmm ...why is this compared to Obama's healthcare plan?

universal health care plan is not necessarily free but presumably cheaper with trade-off like less choice, flexibility, and expectations.
